Answer: 
If this one's not good for "mesh underlayment" , which one is?
FYI i didn't mean to imply there's some kind of separate underlayment; these are 12 x12 of 2 " marble tiles on a mesh backing. will be going onto Duroc (over exterior ply)

The top is plastic laminate, 36"X72". I will be using mainly 12"X12" porcelain tiles but will cut them to smaller sizes (2"X2" and 4"X4") on the outer edges so they won't overlap the top. What grout should I use? Do I need to brng the worksurface in over the winter?

Answer: 
the laminate must be roughened up by sanding or scarifying. Prism Grout can be used for joints 1/16" up to 1/2" indoor and outdoor. Temperature during installation must be above 50 and below 90 degrees during installation. If you need further assistance contact our installation division at 800.282.8786

As long as you install it correctly, you really wouldn't need to bring it inside during colder months, since porcelain tiles are frost-resistant.
All grouts we sell are rated for outdoor use, the key is to use a tile and grout sealer to ensure your work will last.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always good, consistent and dependable. Great product. Always a dependable product. Easy to mix, install and clean up. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, worth the extra $$. Used this product on 12x24 porcelain tile in my kitchen. I wanted anything I could use to prevent cracks or floor movement at an affordable price within reason. Tiles adhere extremely well I applied to floor with 1/2" groove trowel and also back buttered each tile. I will deffinately use this product again with any other tile work May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pergo wood laminate floors and area rug. My Pergo wood laminate floors and area rug are beautiful together they were easy to install and look like hard wood also very easy to clean I am very happy with the results. October 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use Sets great works great and actually pretty eay to use April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by First time but not last time This was used for my first time tile project which called for a polymer modified morter thinset. I used this as its reviews were good. I was going to use another versabond product until I got to the store and realized it was only sold in white and I wanted gray.As stated before this was my first tile project, and I feel this stuff worked great. I read on another review somewhere that the perfect mix was 11 cups mortar to 4 cups water,so I tried it and it was perfect. I mixed small batches with power drill and mixer and the work time was great by hours. Will definitely use versabond for my next project when needed. December 28, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overpriced but great product This is the only mortar I used to lay tile. It is far superior than anything on the market. But, it is twice as much as the standard mortar which is a bit extreme. That's the only reason I didn't give it five stars. Super strong and will not fail. March 8, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great choice for my bathroom floor!! As far as thin sets go, this was by far the better choice for replacing my bathroom tile! My last floor only 10 years old was cracked in places because I'd used economy thin-set & tile. This time I went with a better grade discount tile but liked the performance rating on this thin-set so I spent twice as much getting it, but feel it's going to fix my issues with cracked tiles from coming back! Right now my floor looks fantastic! Hope this one lasts for many years to come! January 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to work with Easy to mix with a drill & mixing blade in small to large batches depending on the size of the area you are working. It has a sturdy yet flexible bond especially important with heated floors. Also easy to clean off the top of tile even after it has dried. January 5, 2016
